Galentine’s Day grows in popularity every year. Introduced by everyone’s favorite Gal Pal, Leslie Knope on an episode of Parks and Rec, Galentine’s Day is now widely recognized among besties everywhere. In many ways, the love we share with dear friends is the most significant of all; it makes sense to celebrate these deep connections and meaningful relationships.
PLUS, it’s a great excuse to spend a super fun day spoiling your BFFs! There are so many fun ways to celebrate and show your appreciation for your best girls.
Galentine’s Day Gift Ideas:
Gal Pal Mug Sets
Is she the Leslie to your Ann? The Tina to your Amy? Or the literal “OG” Gal Pals – the Oprah to your Gayle? (These mugs were even featured in Oprah magazine’s Galentine’s Day Gift Guides!) Show her she’s your ride or die with the perfect set of mugs! Purchase one for your bestie or a set of both so you can keep one too and think of each other every time you reach for your special mug.
As Palentine’s Day is catching on – there’s a mug for that too! 😉
Olive and June Mani/Pedi Kits
How about a zoom date to do your nails together? I have recently fallen IN.LOVE with Olive and June nail products – from their gorgeous colors to their mani and pedi kits and their luxurious serums. This nail polish is the only formula that lasts on my nails. I’ve gone 7-8 days without chips and that’s before they launched their new nail primer! They also have mani “bootcamps.” You and your bestie can follow along for the perfect self care routine and some much needed girl time! Send your girls a favorite color, the whole mani kit or a gift card so they can pick out their own faves.

Silk Hair Tie or Silk Eye Mask
This is not only a great gift idea, but one of my favorite products. Silk hair ties don’t leave creases in my hair and silk eye masks are just heavenly. I can’t sleep without either one.
Honor your friendships with a Custom Zodiac Print
This printable artwork is great for families but also works for a group of dear friends. Incorporate all of your birthdays and zodiac signs. You can choose a quote for the bottom instead of a family name, or commemorate the day you met. Purchase the high resolution file once and then download and print it as many times as you’d like! Makes a thoughtful and unique gift.
Galentine’s Day Cards
Sometimes all that’s needed is a heartfelt card letting your dear friends know how much you care. Here are some of my favorite Galentine’s Day Cards available on Etsy:
Galentine’s Day Cards by Blue Thistle Prints, The Red Swan Gift Shop, Love Light Paper, and Cambridge Cir Studio
Or perhaps you and your girls are not so into the whole Valentine’s/Galentine’s Day thing?
Or how about this “FTS” reversible sequin pillow, which, let’s be honest, is great for so many different occasions. Careful, this listing is NSFW 😉
Whether you celebrate your best girls on Galentine’s Day or any day, I hope this list of Galentine’s Day gift ideas gave you some great inspiration. Happy Gal/Pal/Valentine’s Day! xo
